Your Rights After a DUI Arrest in Santa Clarita
Allow Our DUI Attorneys to Defend Your Freedoms
If you have recently been pulled over and asked to take a field sobriety test, it is likely that the officer suspects you have been drinking and driving. They may ask you to take a breath or blood test, or simply another type of physical action such as the walk-and-turn or one-leg stand test. While you may have thought that you passed the test, the officer arrested you regardless and now you are facing serious charges of drunk driving. If you were arrested for DUI, our firm can help you with details throughout the situation so you know your rights.

Know Your Rights: Call Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP
When you are pulled over and arrested on DUI charges, the officer must inform you on your Fifth Amendment rights - the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney - which we strongly advise that you take advantage of immediately. It is best to remain silent when you are arrested. Any information you give the officers can be taken out of context and used against you in the future. Additionally, choosing to work with our skilled Santa Clarita DUI attorneys as opposed to a public defender is always suggested. Often times, these public defenders are spread so thin on so many cases that they hardly have time to defend your matter.
At our office, we not only have the time, but the respect for you to thoroughly pick through every piece of evidence to compile a strong defense for your case. Whether this is your first drunk driving offense or you have multiple DUIs on your record, we can comb through your case and work to find an effective defense strategy.
Our firm has 25 years of experience in handling matters related to:
- DUI accidents
- 21 & under DUI
- Out-of-state DUI
- Felony DUI
- And more
We can discuss your situation during a consultation of your case! Contact a Santa Clarita DUI lawyer from our office today.
